South Pacific & Australia & New Zealand Cruises with Seabourn Cruise Line
Things are just a little bit different on the other side of the world. On a Seabourn cruise to Australia and New Zealand you'll learn new words like, cossie (slang for bathing suit), ripper (terrific) and furphy (a rumor). You will see exotic animals like dingos, Tasmanian devils and koalas. But most of all, you will experience this beautiful laid-back culture and its people on a luxury Seabourn cruise to Australia and New Zealand.
Did you know that Australia is home to the world's largest organism? And no, we're not talking about blue whales camping outside this continent's border. It's the wondrous Great Barrier Reef, which is approximately 1,600 miles long and includes 2,900 individual reefs. This astounding underwater island is reason alone to cruise to Australia.
Seabourn has been sailing to Australia and New Zealand for years and knows that cruisers would be missing out if they didn't get to fully experience New Zealand. This island nation located east of Australia doesn't get as much attention, but contains many interesting attractions and beautiful locales. Here you can visit a sheep farm in Akaroa, not far from Christchurch. In Kaikoura you will have the opportunity to learn about the Maori culture and try your hand at weaving with the native flax plant. In Oban you can go bird watching on the water and find albatross and penguins along with fur seals and dolphins.
For 2015, Seabourn is offering an exclusive selection of cruises to Australia and New Zealand. Because Seabourn only has six ships - with no more than 255 suites a piece - a cruise is more intimate and involved. You will be able to visit ports that larger ships, simply can't maneuver to because of their size. You are also given the chance to really form close relationships with your fellow cruisers and the staff who will quickly learn your preferences and personality.
